COULD HAVE BEEN LONGER WHILE MORE DETAILED SO THAT FACTS COULD BE EASILY CORROBORATED,OR NOT. THIS IS THE ONLY FILM OF ITS KIND (911 EXCEPTED)AND SHOULD BE A WAKE-UP CALL TO ALL AMERICANS,THAT SAY THEY LOVE THIS COUNTRY BUT DON'T LOVE IT OR GOD OR TRUTH ENOUGH TO FIRSTLY,KNOW IT WHEN THEY SEE IT AND THEN SECONDLY TO PROTEST CORRUPTION WHENEVER IT OCCURS AND NO MATTER WHO IT IS.THE MORALITY THE CURRENT PRESIDENT IS ALWAYS JABBERING ABOUT
DOESN'T APPLY TO HIM ,I GUESS,AND IN MY HUMBLE OPINION AS A CHRISTIAN IF THEY HAD THE FAITH THEY CLAIM TO HAVE THEY WOULDNT HAVE TO ATTACK
DISFUNCTIONAL COUNTRIES IN THE THIRD WORLD FOR
ANY REASON BECAUSE GOD ,IS IN CONTROL,UNLESS THAT IS "GOD TOLD HIM TO DO IT?

Subject: Compelling Footage
I was glad to have downloaded all three portions of this piece, and only wish there had been more. I had been ready to concede the issue of voting irregularities based on the fact that no one in power--beyond the usual cast of African American characters in Congress, flanked by Jesse Jackson--seemed willing to stake a reputation behind the issue. However, after viewing these compelling *first person* accounts, I am more resolved than ever to write my representatives and ensure that my voice is heard on this issue. American democracy is truly in danger. I cannot imagine any citizen--Democrat or Republican--wanting anything other than a complete, in-depth investigation of these irregularities. This is truly chilling footage.

Irregularities were too common to be "irregularities".

The Bush Campaign Chair for the State of Ohio shouldn't be in an elected position with intimate involvement with the vote (i.e. the ability to certify the states votes) - like Kathrine Harris & Kenneth Blackwell.

The "bias" in the videos above isn't bias - it's anger. There were an inadequate number of machines in the heavily democratic minority polling stations for a reason.

Kerry won.

The 3.5M popular vote margin means nothing - obviously our electoral system is obsolete.
Unfortunately for Democrats this favors Republican as this coutries population continues to grow - particularly in the middle of the country.

Signed a PROUD LIBERAL DEMOCRAT.

I watched this to try to put together a report. Unfortunately these tapes lack content. It only contains 2nd & 3rd party acusations by Democrats who obviously do not want clean cut Republicans in their polling place not even if they are just standing around which I gather was their legal right and all these tapes show. If Anti-Republican, Reverse Racism, Content free news for Democrats is what you are looking for here is the place you will find it, after wasting an hour of your time downloading and viewing.
